I have a 2008 suzuki grand vitara with only 67k miles on it. Looking at a H3 with 81k on it. Is this a stupid trade? I just love the H3 its loaded.

I would do the trade, definitely see if it has all the options you need in the H3. Some of the upgrades can get costly if you plan to do them later on like e-locker, 4:1 transfer case etc. if it has everything you want and was well maintained go for it. I have an 06' and do not plan to sell it.

I would make the trade myself but what do you plan on doing with the H3? Do you plan on taking it off road? If so you might want to look for a model with the Adventure package which gives you a rear locker (front and rear in '09) as well as 4:1 low range gears in the transfer case. Not that the H3X won't be any good off road, it will be and if you are going to just occasionally use it off road it will be all you need.

Thanks for the info. This will be the family vehicle and my go to work vehicle. I have a short 5 mile drive so it should be ok with that. I may consider off road, but very small chance. Just need something great in snow too
